Ambedkar hospital to have waste disposal facility

So far it has been outsourcing it to pvt agencies


Sonal Matharu | March 8, 2010

Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital will soon have a waste-disposal facility in the hospital campus to segregate and treat the waste generated in the hospital.

The treatment plant is set up in collaboration with the Public Works Department (PWD) and would be operational within a week, said Dr. V.K. Agarwal, medical superintendent of Ambedkar Hospital.

“The construction of the facility is almost complete. Machinery will be procured by the equipment procurement committee of the hospital through open tender. PWD has promised us that the operation will start within a week.”

The facility, once operational, would also be used by the other hospitals in the north-west Delhi region. With the absence of any waste disposal plant in the hospital vicinity, Ambedkar hospital outsources its medical waste which is then treated. 

“With the facility within the hospital, we would be able to save time as well as the cost,” Agarwal added.
